Be Kind Rewind

Continuity mistake: In a scene early on where Mike is behind the video shop counter and Jerry is in front of it, the positions of the videos on the shelves behind Jerry alter from shot to shot.

Continuity mistake: When Jerry is talking to the woman in the video store after being magnetized, the videos on the shelves keep changing position. Keep your eye on the Lord of the Rings tape.

Visible crew/equipment: When the man is standing outside the shop and threatens to go to West Coast Video to get "Rush Hour 2", some of the crew can be seen reflected in the window.

Jerry: [Talking about The Lion King] It's deeply deep. 'Cause the uncle kills the nephew's father.
Old Lady: Which is his brother.
Jerry: That's his brother. He kills his own brother, right? That's some heavy Shapeskearean shit.
Mike: [laughs]
Jerry: What's funny?
Mike: Shape...nothing.

Question: How does being magnetised give you the power to delete tape footage? Wouldn't that work for DVDs, but not for VHS? Also I noticed in the scene where Jerry walks into the video store magnetised, the screen on the tv got all staticky every time I watched it. Was the static intentional?

Chosen answer: VHS is data magnetically encoded on tape. A magnet will wipe them out. DVD/CD's are data encoded in plastic with a laser. Magnets won't hurt them in the slightest. Yes, the static was intentional, magnets can interfere with televisions.
